Trafficked & Tortured

by Junkyard Lipstick



We are excited to release our new single,"Trafficked and Tortured".

This song is a taste of what's to come off our soon-to-be-released album "Repulsive Judgement".
This will follow up our 2014 EP "The Butcher's Delight" and our debut album "Hellbent" released in 2013.
The album will be the first for vocalist & rhythm guitarist, Jo & Robyn, as well as our new bassist.

"Trafficked & Tortured" is our most serious song in terms of lyrical content and the music projects sadness, panic & anger.
The song is about a young lady's account of being kidnapped by a human trafficking syndicate, almost like the movie "Taken" but in our song she's tortured as well.
This may seem extreme but this type of thing happens to females all over the world and most of the time, it doesn't have a happy ending.
Being an all-female band, we'd like our content to reflect that which evokes emotion in us as women.
This song empathizes with victims of violent crime against women around the world.

We welcome Katinka Janse van Rensburg to our junkyard on bass guitar.
We are very excited to be whole again. With every member change we have gone through, a fresh perspective is brought into the mix and has contributed to the evolution of Junkyard Lipstick's sound.
We are eager to start writing new material with Kat to continue the Junkyard Lipstick journey.


Last happy memory
The holiday in the sun
Crystal waters misted up
Captured and lost

Disrupted dreamless sleep
Twisted, cannot escape
Stuck in a dark small place
Trapped in a trunk

Rusted & Rotten
Needles penetrate my skin
Preparing me for my purpose
My spirit senses death

Trafficked, Tortured
Trafficked, Tortured

Panic fills my body
When I realize my fate
Moving through city sounds
Choking on fumes

Grumbling starvation
Smells of sickness and sex
Bruised body, vacant face
Deafening moans of pleasure and pain

Trafficked and Tortured
My body sold
My soul kidnapped
Fed me drugs to control

Shoving, pushing, beating
Foreign accents, strange places
Fighting, kicking, screaming,
Foreign voices, stange places

Surrendered all hope
Sold, Sexed and strung out
Traded till death do us part
Suicide is too much effort
Surrendered all hope
Sold, Sexed and strung out
Traded till death do us part
